The Acai berry’s pulp is tasty to eat and high in fibre. The most common way to have Acai berry is as a weight loss supplement. Constipation is reduced. Just consuming this weight loss supplement causes many people to lose from five to 25 pounds a month on average. The metabolism runs faster with Acai and food is processed faster through the system with the result of preventing fat from building up. Thus, its benefits as a weight loss supplement.
Added benefits of the acai berry are that it has 30 times more anthocyanin than red wine and is rich in vitamins and minerals and therefore can replace many high caloried foods. As far as protein is concerned, it has as much protein as an egg.

Let’s just face it, the best kept beauty secrets among Hollywood beauties, male and female, is not their affairs, breakdowns, shopping sprees but rather plastic surgery. In an industry where beauty and thinness is a prerequisite for working in Hollywood, celebrities must maintain their good looks and their great bodies. With the advances in plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery, Hollywood celebrities are lining up to get this and that fixed as they age.
But age is no longer limited to celebrities as they hit say, 38 or 40 or older. The younger set of actors and actresses are also getting plastic surgery to fix what they think is not “perfect”.
Who are some of the younger celebrities that are getting plastic surgery? It was thought that Rihanna got breast implants but this is just a false rumour. She is known to wear outfits which push her breasts up and out. However, she doesn’t deny that when she gets older, she will probably go under the knife, but for the meantime, she is happy with her looks and wants to stay as natural as possible.
Adrienne Bailon of Cheetah Girls has definitely had some breast implants if you look at some before and after photos of her. No bra can work such wonders as to make the boobs look the way hers do in later photographs.
Chase Crawford, of Gossip Girl, only 23 years old is rumoured to have had a nose job to make his nose appear narrower.
Lindsay Lohan, only a tender 22 years old, but the willing participant of wild all night parties has had to have Botox, according to our sources. Botox has been used to lift her eyebrows, remove some deep creases on her forehead and soften the lines under her eyes. Alcohol and excessive partying can definitely ruin your looks. Read more about celebrities and partying here.
Megan Fox, 22 years old, very sexy and beautiful is rumoured to get Botox injections on the set. It is also rumoured that she has had breast implants, a nose job and lip injections.
Miley Cyrus, 16, and Zac Efron, 21, have had their teeth fixed to show off their great smiles. Miley has had teeth whitening and bonding and Zac has had the space between his two front teeth fixed.
Is Botox necessary? It’s a tool that mere mortals and celebrities use to look better. Botox does not last forever and you have to get Botox re-done about every six months. Botox is not known to have side effects in most people. How does Botox works? It weakens the muscles that cause wrinkles to form. Young people are using it as a preventative measure. But it seems the younger people are who start using it, the more likely it is to become an addiction.
Plastic surgery, cosmetic surgery and fillers like Botox are usually some of the most closely guarded celebrity beauty secrets around, but with some of the great results obtained by the stars, it’s hard to keep it a secret.
